There is a project to port Linux to the 8086. See
http://www.linux.org.uk/Linux8086.html. The functionality is obviously
only a part of the normal Linux. The project makes use of segment
pointers which makes it a bit more difficult to port the code ...
But that's probably not what they want ...
A weird imagination is most useful to gain full advantage
of all the features - manpage of amd(8).
